1. Overview

Access Broadband Cymru provides grants to fund or part-fund the equipment and installation costs of new broadband connections for homes and businesses in Wales. The grant does not include running costs. 

New connections through this scheme must deliver a significant change in speed. The new connection must at least double your current download speeds.

The amount of funding you can receive depends on the speed of the new connection:

  • £400 for 10Mbps and above
  • £800 for 30Mbps and above

If you are part of a rural community, support may be available from the UK Government to connect to gigabit capable broadband.

Applications will not be accepted if the premises has received Access Broadband Cymru grant support within the last 48 months. There will be no exceptions to this clause.
